What are the major benefits of ChoicePoint's data collection? and What are some of the possible harms of ChoicePoint's data collection?

Businesses are able to track the buying behaviors of consumers and offer discounts on frequently purchased items. ChoicePoint’s data collection has also provided many benefits to society through actively participating in finding many abducted children, have helped track down people not paying owed child support, and have provided information to law enforcement agencies that has led to the arrest of hundreds of criminals. However there are many people who challenge these benefits as to whether or not they out weigh the possible harms of this type of data collection. Privacy

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
